Sinus medication could have been the cause of a Tuesday morning crash that sent one woman to hospital.

Emergency crews were called to Baron Road near Ziprick, where a brown Mitsubishi sedan struck a tree, said Const. Steve Holmes.

“Emergency crews attended the incident at just after 8 a.m. and police were told, by the driver, that she became sleepy after taking sinus medication and lost control of her vehicle,” said Holmes.

The driver complained of bruising to her chest, possibly caused by the seat belt, and was taken to Kelowna General Hospital for examination and treatment.

The vehicle suffered front end damage and was towed from the scene.

No other vehicles or pedestrians were involved and police have found no other contributing factors to the crash.

The driver was not charged.
